Using E-books

The Mannheim University Library provides access to a comprehensive collection of e-books.

You can research the library’s e-book collection using the Primo catalog. You can access e-books from any computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. You do not necessarily need an e-book reader, however, you can borrow e-book readers at the InfoCenter.

Accessing the E-book Collection

Students and staff members of the University of Mannheim can access the e-book collection:

  • via computers on campus or the university wireless network eduroam
  • from off-campus, using the VPN client
  • from off-campus, using Shibboleth – please note: this option is not available for all electronic resources.

Students from cooperating institutions as well as non-university members holding a library card can access the e-book collection using a library computer.

Please check your browser settings first if an e-book is not displayed correctly. We recommend using the latest version of either Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
